Welcome to the Land of the Iowa Caucus.

1,671 Caucuses will be held this evening in Iowa. There will also be a “caucus” in Paris, France, Scotland, and the Republic of Georgia, for Iowans who live out of country. All are run by volunteers. It’s what makes Iowa special in the Presidential Election process and a system the citizens of Iowa take quite seriously.

A candidate must get to a 15% threshold to obtain delegates. There’s a LOT of persuasion involved.

In 1972, the state of Iowa reformed their election process to the current intricate caucus system. One candidate who paid attention was Jimmy Carter, polling a 2%. His campaign bet big on Iowa. Carter started working the Iowa caucuses in 1974, and the press notoriety he gained vaulted him to the Presidency. Subsequent candidates assumed, if it worked for Governor Peanut, it might work for them, and the focus on Iowa began. Same with Freshman Senator Obama in 2008, who gained Oprah’s endorsement before the Iowa Caucus.

Here is an extremely valuable video to explain the system: blob:https://www.mynbc5.com/19b01598-2004-4005-bb0f-71d87e58c00d

Throughout the day and this evening, as we track results, commentators will refer to various counties. Thought this map might help to get us oriented.

The map below is a district map for State Senators and will give you a better idea of population distribution, with obviously smaller districts in larger metro areas.

Historically, the biggest thing to effect the Iowa Caucus is the weather. Today looks pretty good in Iowa. “More clouds than sun. Some drizzle or freezing drizzle possible. High 36F. Winds NNE at 15 to 25 mph.”, according to Weather.com

The Republicans will also caucus this evening. Since President Trump is mostly unopposed, we could see 1671 precinct mini-rallies for the President. The Trump campaign has dispatched 80 higher level campaign officials to speak at various caucuses including Don Jr, Eric, Lara, Admin members, all kinds of Trump Supporters will be on the ground this evening in Iowa.

Of course, Trump Supporters may take time out to troll a few Dem rallies today, very Trumpian.

Tonight, within those town halls, it will be all about persuasion and convincing the minority candidate members to JOIN another candidate. Let’s see what happens.

Because of the ShaMMMpeachment in DC, Presidential candidates who are also Senators have been stuck in DC, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Klobuchar. Much has been made of how much their absence will affect their chances to win Iowa. Pundits thought it might help Biden, Bloomberg, and Pete Boot-Edge-Edge, but it appears, Biden is sinking in the polls….. We’re not sure about the polling because the Des Moines Register refused to release their last poll under a cloud of suspicion.

Found a pic of Candidate Trump and Melania on the night of the Iowa Caucus in 2016. Check it out.

Of course, the best candidate with the best policies for Iowa is President Trump. Our side cannot rest comfortably and a contentious Dem primary stirs up activity on the side of the opposition. We need to be just as determined, come out and support our man, Trump, to win the state of Iowa in November!!

Where will YOU be in November?

Most of us have known of FLEP for years and admired his poll-tracking and diligence.
FLEP has perfectly summed up the Dem Primary focus and how it relates to the Presidential election. Read his words from the News Roundup carefully. So good, I thought it was worth repeating here:

I truly believe that we are in the mist of watching the Democrat Party collapse right in front of our eyes. The 2020 Democrat Primaries are exposing that fact for us. The Democrats will have two parties coming out of the 2020 election. The Establishment Democrats and the Progressive/Socialist/Communist Democrats.

The problem for the Establishment Democrats and MSM is that they represent the old guard. The Progressive Democrats represent the new guard. By having the Progressive Democrats win the nominee will guarantee TRUMPISM reigning for the next 50+ years. There is no way that either party can beat the Trump Republican Party.

Bernie Sanders guarantees not only our President getting re-elected but he will win with over 350+ electoral votes and he will win the popular vote as well. He is a pure communist. Yes 30% of Americans love him and will vote for him. 55% of Americans LOVE our President and will vote for him.

The remaining 15% is what I consider the Establishment Democrats. Many will vote for our President or will sit out the election. Our President will not only win every state that he won in 2016, he will also win Virginia, Minnesota, New Mexico and New Hampshire. I also wouldn’t be surprised if he wins Nevada, Colorado and my long shot, Oregon.

Our man, FLEP, Good News RoundUp, February 3, 2020

Note #2: Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan are in Iowa right now, indicative of where the importance is in politics. Impeachment is overwith and we’ve moved on.

Note #3: Kiss of death, from Politico. Even left leaning media outlets are conceding the State of Iowa, implying whoever wins the Dem Primary, they won’t be back to the state, …… cuz Trump will win it.

We LOVE Iowa, and Iowa loves Trump!

I don’t have the patience or desire to try to understand how the Dem caucus works. All I see is a huge mess, with coin tosses, candidates not being treated equally, etc. It seems like a free-for-all. How could something touted as being so important be run so poorly after all these years?

duchess01

It is fraught with fraud, too, Truths!

TheseTruths

Yes. It seems so strange. Bernie has known about the fraud for years but has done nothing about it that I know of. It’s as if they all play the game because there are benefits to being crooked, even if they lose the current election. And the opposite is also probably true, that there are dangers in speaking up. These people must be defeated.

duchess01

When you have sold your soul for fame and fortune – there is no going back – it is a game designed to destroy you – and anyone the enemy wants to take along with you –
We are not of this world – the world has nothing to offer us in the way of rewards that is worth losing our forever home.
I cannot listen and/or look at these people – the evil is so appalling to my eyes and ears – I cannot tolerate it – they are lost forever.

Hell, at this point they should just draw straws…..wait….they outlawed those

If Democrats are too incompetent to count votes it’s probably not the best idea to let them run the country. #KeepAmericaGreat #TrumpPence2020

New theory going around that the Democrats are intentionally trying to destroy the caucus system so that they can replace it with a different format, i.e. Soros voting machines.

Volgarian8301

I have a better idea…let’s destroy them and replace with a better format. Would not put it past them AT ALL. They destroy everything they touch

Sadie Slays

Robby Mook is trying to distance himself from this mess. Twitter replies are letting him have it.

For three years, we’ve been preparing for the process that officially kicks off tonight in Iowa: the Democratic presidential primary. Today our chair, @TomPerez, reflects on the reforms we’ve made to make this the most transparent primary in our history: https://bit.ly/2SgkWDX

TheseTruths

Pres. Trump and many in his administration could have had the caucus running smoothly in no time. I don’t think the Dems want it to run smoothly. It’s easier to get away with cheating when there’s chaos.

Volgarian8301

If nobody wins do they ALL descend on New Hampshire??

Volgarian8301

I gotta quit….just 1 more 🤣🤣🤣

LOL I need more! Can’t stop laughing

It seems the only thing you missed was that the Buttigieg campaign helped finance the app (which, when 64% of precincts were counted, put him on top).

UNHINGED!! SPLODEY HEADS!! STUPIDISM!! Proving in the best way possible Democrats cannot walk and chew gum at the same time. (parodying the soon-to-be former DNC chairman, communist, anarchist, idiot and spittle-shooter Tom Perez). This gem from MSDNC/MSLSD:
MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell said Tuesday on her network that the Iowa caucus was “the perfect example of systemic racism” given the demographics of the state.
Maxwell said, “The Iowa caucus is essentially the perfect example of systemic racism. Ninety-one percent of the voters in Iowa are white. The reason why you see a drop in turnout, I’m just speculating here, it could be perhaps that white children are not in the cages. So when you are talking about the tangible pain that black and brown people are feeling, they feel a sense of urgency because their kids are being put in cages, right? So if you have 91% white electorate, that sense of urgency may not be reflected in the turnout numbers. I’m not saying that’s the reason for this. It could be a factor.”

Sadie Slays

I suspect what we’re witnessing is the controlled demolition of the Iowa Caucus. The DNC probably wasn’t happy in 2008 when Iowa picked Obama over Hillary, but at least they could work with that result. In 2016, the only reason the state didn’t go to Bernie is because of DNC rigging and coin tosses. Internal polling probably showed another Bernie win in 2020. At that point, a strategic long-term decision was probably made to get the DNC out of Iowa entirely. Sabotage the election, push the narrative that Iowa is “too white” to be the first state anyways, and then use this all as an excuse to move the 2024 first vote to a state more in line with DNC interests.
It doesn’t explain why they let Mayor Cheat become collateral damage, although that could be explained away as general DNC hubris.
